Oh yes.  :)  FMA4 will have a different feature bit than AVX or FMA3.  FMA4 is 
our top priority after AVX due to Bulldozer.

What would you like to see for FMA4?  I will be implementing that just as
soon as I push up some more AVX support.

The AVX work is ready to be pushed up and I am working on that.  
Unfortunately, pesky things like software releases are getting in the
way.  :)  I hope to get back to this next week.
